You are bidding on a SUPERB example of a 100% original WW2 German Luftwaffe Gashebel (Throttle Lever), 109.769-01 H02 as used ONLY in the Me109 F thru K German Fighter Aircraft! This was recovered from an Me109 at war’s end, and brought back by a US Serviceman.
This throttle handle was mounted on the main throttle assembly (Gashebel) on the port side of the cockpit, and featured a Drehzahl (Prop Pitch) switch on the main handle/knob. Though the Me109 was usually set for Auto Propeller Pitch, the pilot could manually change the pitch with his thumb, by adjusting the switch on the side of this unit.
Made of aluminum and steel, this late-style throttle lever was manufactured between 1943 and 19452. It has some marks, scratches, and wear, but is EASILY identifiable and VERY solid! It still retains much of its original paint, as well as the RARE Thrittle Knob! I have indicated it’s location in the last photos. An EXTREMELY RARE item, it would make SUPERB item for any collection, display, or restoration project!
Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

——————- ABOUT ME —————–
Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
